The Ibiza Rocks people must have put in a bit of overtime this year as they have already announced the Headline act for the Ibiza Rocks opening 2013.
The Ibiza Rocks opening 2013 will take place on June 5th, Jake Bugg will be the headline act for the first party of the season. The Ibiza Rocks website has been updated to include all the Ibiza Rocks and W.A.R dates with the acts to be announced. The hotel will be putting gigs on till 30th September in 2013.
Now if there is one thing you can trust with Ibiza Rocks, it is to put on good acts and bands, personally, i have never heard of Jake Bugg before i looked him up today, but before i even looked him up, i had high expectations. They have always gone for emerging talent as well as experienced well-travelled bands and acts.
If you’re a little like me, you can check out his latest track below, although i had no idea who Jake Bugg was, i have heard the two songs ive put down below before so check them out.
2011 was a great year for the Ibiza Rocks guys, they had a great lineup of talent on during the summer and they also went all Ska with their closing party when Madness took to the stage to finish of the year. Madness playing at Ibiza Rocks fit in well with a whole host of gigs from bands, groups that you would not expect to see on the Island and it all seems to have gone down well.
Ibiza Rocks are already however, busy planning next year. The Hotel opens from the 15th May with weekly gigs taking place from the 6th June for 17 weeks. You can expect the usual top class lineup every Wednesday throughout the summer and if your staying at the hotel the your gig ticket is already included in the price.
New for 2012 are Saturday nights, if bands are not completely your thing you can go to the hotel on a Saturday to see a top class range of Dj’s playing on the main stage next to the pool. Last year, people like Annie Mac and FatBoy Slim played in the hotel, other dates that stick in my mind in the past is Stave Angello with his Size Matters party.
Last week i spent all my hard earned money in Ibiza, i stayed in San Antonio because the hotel was nice and cheap 🙂
Part of our week away was to take in Ibiza Rocks on the Wednesday, I’m not a massive fan of indie / rock but i do enjoy my trips to Ibiza rocks. In small amounts i have a good time and then get back to what i love the most which is more dance / electronic orientated music.
This year it quickly became apparent that the guys behind Ibiza Rocks had gone into overdrive to push the brand and the night out. They have the Hotel, Bar, House, Boat and after party in Es Paradis!
All this is fair enough however one of the first things i noticed was Ibiza Rocks bar, as i said i wasn’t in San An last year and i didn’t really take in the news that Bar M had been re branded. Bar M was a great bar. In the daytime they played relaxing but great music, i feel the food they have got in that bar is spot on! I would almost go as far as to say you get to much food, i would always recommend the spicy wings!!
Well the day has arrived and the line-up is now official for Ibiza Rocks 2011. There are still 7 dates that don’t have artists scheduled but the other dates have a good mix of new and predictable.
As i predicted in an earlier post, Magnetic Man and Katie B will be performing this year on August 31st which i expect to be one of the highlights of the summer, Other bands i don’t think have played are the The Wombats and the week im there The Vaccines. Another big name in the Mix that has been announced is Fat Boy Slim on the 22nd June.
I think so far though the true surprise is the 14th September when Madness will be playing at the Ibiza rocks hotel, it may be random, but again, something i think people will be talking about for a long time!!
Through the power of twitter (thanks @blogibiza) it can now be announced that Ibiza Rocks will be opening on the 1st June 2011 and Plan B will be headlining the opening show.
Ibiza Rocks has been growing year on year since it first started packing out Bar M on the beach, Now in its own venue (the Ibiza rocks hotel) it has become a must do for everyone on the island from celebrities to average Jo like you and me. They have also renamed Bar M to the Ibiza Rocks Diner (it will always be Bar M to me 🙂
I’m Sure 2011 will be another great year for Ibiza Rocks, Plan B had an amazing year last year as did many other artists which would fit in nicely at the hotel, (im thinking Katy B or Magnetic Man would be fresh popular faces)
Tickets for the opening are priced at £33 including booking fee and can be purchased on Ibiza Rocks
Ibiza Rocks Hotel has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, some readers may remember i initially had some big concerns with Ibiza Rocks Hotel in that when it opened you booked through twenties, my concerns have been completely blown away with what they have done and im delighted to say how wrong i got it.
Ive not stayed there myself but i have been in and everything from the entrance to toilets has been done exceptionally well, the atmosphere in there for an Ibiza Rocks night is second to non and when i was there had a brilliant time (even if it was the Ting Tings playing!!!)
